Shawn Powers, associate editor of Linux Journal, delivers the morning keynote at Ohio Linuxfest 2009.
Some central ideas:
* So many different tools which do the same thing confuse users sometimes
* When selling the idea of Linux to someone, it's important to be forthcoming about shortcomings and caveats: if they know all the bad, they can only discover the good.
* Teach concepts, not specific applications
* One catches more flies with flypaper, but pie works, too.
